O4W Pizza, the Irwin Street Market pizza joint known for its Grandma Pie, will open a much larger location in Duluth this year. Owner Anthony Spina was originally looking to relocate the order-at-the-counter restaurant in order to get more space, but stumbled upon the old Steverino’s spot at 3117 Main Street and thought it would be perfect for a second restaurant.
Also called O4W Pizza, the restaurant will seat 40 to 60 diners inside, plus another 80 on the front and back patios. With more space comes more room to expand the menu, Spina says, noting that there will be more salads and heroes, but fewer pizza options. Of course the Grandma Pie will always be available. There will be beer and wine, too.
Initially, O4W Pizza Duluth will keep the same fast-casual format as the Irwin Street location, but Spina says he has plans to divide it into a market and café later on. “I have a lot of ideas but I haven’t narrowed them down yet,” he says.
Set in a late 1800s building, O4W Pizza Duluth will have an industrial look with exposed brick walls and metal ceilings. Spina hopes to open the restaurant in the spring. The original location will be business as usual.
